The Madonna and Child with a Female Martyr Saint, a Bishop Saint, and a Female Donor
Although this drawing echoes the vocabulary of Stefano da Verona, it is more likely attributable to one of his followers, due to its schematic quality and the uncertain spatial relation among the figures. The sheet may represent a copy of a lost painting by Stefano da Verona or perhaps a compositional concept produced by a pupil. The female donor in the foreground kneels in adoration before the Virgin and Child, as she is presented by the accompanying female saint holding a martyr’s palm. At the right, a bishop saint bears a crosier and miter.
